Chapter Four: Tribes

Strong-new tribes formed after the cataclysm. Jim mingled with different groups in each generation, differentiating them from one another with subtle alterations in their breeding.

It began with the virus. He introduced it and then spread it through inter-tribal contacts. The virus facilitated the coding of their memories on a genetic level, thereby linking the disparate groups to one another in ways that they never had been linked together before.

It created a common well of memory that all human beings would share and draw from no matter how far from one another they became by separation in time, or on the surface of the earth.

He guided them across the continents to key places, where they could evolve independently from one another, developing their own languages and traditions without competing with one another for the vital resources they required to thrive, or at least minimizing that competition as much as possible.

Through his breeding programs Jim would keep them connected on that most basic level, strategically moving people by sending them on quests; expeditions, missions that would enable them to be caught up in each-others lives, in a rudimentary and organic collective consciousness.

This was forbidden by the Continuum, but he had long ago discovered a way to hide his clandestine activities from it.

He had developed a mastery of his consciousness such that he was not only able to partition himself from the group consciousness of the Collective, to become in effect invisible, but he had also developed the means to intrude on the privacy of others without their knowledge.

Jim believed that these techniques, if he strengthened them sufficiently, they would protect him when he stood before the more intense scrutiny of the Continuum.

He masked his activities in the data he was sharing with them, in the experience they were addicted to.

The colonists on Earth had fallen from spacefarer to hunter.

Chapter Five: Love

 

Love, altruism, on a certain level these are chemical process, the capacity for which depends on a sequence of amino acids, proteins, and enzymes. These building blocks were augmented in humans with a retro-virus, a parasite, blending its genetic code with its host. It fomented a utilitarian blending of compassion, and desire.

 

It was art.

Chapter Six: Music

 

The collective memory began with rhythm, and became a code fixed in the genes. It united all of the human tribes. It was the drum beat, and that was the back bone of the story through which they all narrated their shared history.

 

The universal archetypes flowed from there.

 

The Collective was obsessed their music.
